A tireless French sheepdog, the Beauceron dates to the late 1500s. Intelligent with a natural guarding instinct, this large breed makes a loving, loyal and gentle companion. The Beauceron is eager to learn and easily trained. His strong personality fits best with experienced, dedicated owners. A natural athlete, he requires daily exercise, but his short coat needs little grooming.

Did you know?

A Beauceron named O'Cara Bleue de St. Sacrement was among the dogs used in the search-and-rescue efforts following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. “Cara” used a special camera placed around her neck to search for signs of life in places unreachable by humans.
